The Third Treasure- Shen 神

Shen is a treasure all onto its own. The closest translation of Shen is “Spirit” or “Mind”. From TCVM perspective, a healthy Shen represents healthy emotional balance- Inner Peace.

Contrary to Western belief, Shen resides in the Heart and requires the support form Heart and Blood to stay healthy.

Disturbance of Shen leads to nervousness, anxiety, inability to focus attention. It can be caused by excessive Fire (Heart) or heart blood deficiency.
